Some of us enjoy spoilers, others (like me) wish I could avoid them all together. This morning MTV posted a major character spoiler in their effin’ headline for Ridley Scott’s now-filming Prometheus, the Alien prequel starring Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Guy Pearce, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Logan Marshall-Green, Benedict Wong, Emun Elliott, Ben Foster and Patrick Wilson (weeeeeewwwwwww).
What was the spoiler you ask? If you don’t want to know, look away now. The site confirmed in an interview with Michael Fassbender that he’ll be starring as an android in the vein of Ash (Ian Holm) in Alien and Bishop (Lance Henriksen) in Aliens. No other interesting bits were talked about, but this is a pretty major role that taps into some of the best themes in the franchise.
Damon Lindelof penned the screenplay in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
